Today we bought a car.  A 1998 Dodge Neon. 

Not a new car.  In fact one that has a familiar feel.

Last year we borrowed this car while the owner was overseas.  She’s planning to be overseas again for two years.  Just made sense to give the car away — or sell it — which made even better sense.  Only one minor $11.00 two-minute fix-it and things were ready to go.

So, Jill doesn’t have to get up at 7:00 in the morning to drive me to work.  And I don’t have to worry about rides after evening meetings when she needs the car.

All in all, a good deal.
